It would be helpful to include in your post your definitions of 
secondfit, second, and maxtime. You'll get more (and better) replies if 
you provide working code that anyone can copy/paste and execute without 
having to make up their own example.

That said, the "Tag Times ... is Protected" error usually means you need 
to clear something. Try quitting Mathematica and running your code in a 
fresh session.

Also, in Mathematica 6, there is no need to muck around with 
DisplayFunction here.

line = Plot[secondfit, {x, 0.8, maxtime}];
splot = ListPlot[second];

will output only the combined plot from Show.
